Group Info

:iconrule1plz::iconrule2plz::iconrule3plz::iconrule4plz:
We are NOT deviantART operators' just deviants looking to protect the community. If you thought silence was peaceful, you have yet to meet us. Currently, deviantART is filled with lewd and obscene nude photographs, pedophiles, perverts, stolen work, trolls and more. Our goal is to help the moderators fix this by reporting deviations and users and eventually help cut down such images and members on deviantART to make deviantART a much friendlier place. We also like to feature our loud opinions and thoughts about this community as well.

It's no secret that the members of deviantART are an opinionated bunch! For good or ill, there's always plenty to say about art that speaks to them. This is great, yet amidst those opinions, you're bound to get reactions that are nothing more than word pollution or troll bait. How many of you have logged into deviantART and faced with this problem?


Stolen from here: comments.deviantart.com/1/2958…

We've all witness it, been a victim of it, spam their page with insults (tried to "troll" them back) or at least heard about it: Folk out in the digital world living for nothing more than the joy of ruffling peoples' feathers. Plenty of times we tried to get rid of them either by insulting them back, calling them names or some of us went THAT far by sending them death threats and wishing them to die. But the question is, does worth wasting all energy on children who are wasting free time by making accounts just to harass and insult you? No, I believe that ignoring them is the best clarification. Why should you bother yourself with someone who came only to insult you or silently humiliate you by making a personal "wall of shame"? It's not worth it.

Bullet; Green The definition of Internet trolling:
Trolling describes actions meant to cause anger or annoyance of others. In Internet slang, a troll (/ˈtroʊl/, /ˈtrɒl/) is a person who sows quarrel on the Internet by starting arguments or upsetting people. By posting inflammatory, external or off-topic messages on the website (such as a newsgroup, forum, chat room, or blog.) With the intent of provoking readers into an emotional response or by disrupting normal, on-topic discussion, often in the troll's amusement, bullying is a form of intimidation. If a group does the bullying, then it's called mobbing.

Bullying or harassment can be identified by repeated behavior and an intent to harm. Harmful bullying behavior can include posting rumors about a person, threats, sexual remarks, disclose victims' personal information, or pejorative labels (i.e., hate speech).

Bullet; Blue KEEP IT IN YOUR MIND THAT THERE IS A TREMENDOUS DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BULLYING AND TROLLING!
1. Internet trolling is a common form of bullying over the Internet in an online community (such as in online gaming social media) in order to elicit a reaction, disruption, or for their own personal amusement. 

2. Harmful bullying behavior can include posting rumors about a person, threats, sexual remarks, disclose victims' personal information, or pejorative labels (i.e., hate speech). Bullying is a form of intimidation. If a group does the bullying, then it's called mobbing. Learn the difference between those two, please.

Bullet; Red Detect the problem!
Being the levelheaded artist that you are, when it comes to outrageous claims and irritating comments about your work, it seems like common sense for you to set the record straight and reply to these virtual text hoodlums. We get it, you spend much time to make a masterpiece and everything you expect from its followers to respect you. Why not? Every artist will get upset about petty offense, the first alternative an artist will do is to insult him back! Why, feed the trolls, of course! But alas, you must learn: DON'T DO IT! I know it may be tempting to react, but then you're playing directly into their hands. Trolls thrive on acknowledgment and live to make you rage quit! Internet troll may understand what you are trying to explain them and what they're doing is wrong. Otherwise, it is the case of one in a million. Don't be below average, don't get down on their level. Got it? Excellent!

Bullet; Green What to do then?
Bullet; Yellow -DO NOT talk to them.
Bullet; Yellow -DO NOT WRITE SOMETHING INTO THE COMMENT BOX.
Bullet; Yellow -DO NOT HIT SEND.
Bullet; Yellow -DO NOT TRY TO "TROLL" THEM BACK. It's pointless!

Bullet; Red Block the problem, don't let it flow!
Blocking a troll is the only solution; there's no other way to get rid of him and his annoying comments. Once a member is blocked, the user which you have listed won't be able to comment on your main page, journals, deviations, personal shoutbox (if you're a subscriber), personal forums (if you're a subscriber), add your deviations to his little "wall of shame" and will be unable to send any Notes to you. I know you like to act smart and to say what you think about them. But you are forgetting you are making a bigger fool of yourself than it needs to be. You're not smart - you're stupid! [Funny photos were done by kozispoon.]
Hup by kozispoon
Iknowitsyou by kozispoon
Remember if you block someone, or if someone blocks you, that's it, the show's over, that's all she wrote. This is critical, so pay attention: Regardless of how justified or well-meaning your goals may be, doing anything to get around that block is harassment, no ifs, and's, or buts! I cannot tell you how many reports I get of members who block someone but are so peeved at what they said, they make a whole new account to give that troll a piece of their mind.

Listen to kozispoon boys, she's a wise admin. Sadly, deviantART will never afford a staff member who is humorous and helpful like kozispoon.

Please note that if you do this, the member you are contacting can write into the HelpDesk and report a behavior that can lead to an account suspension or even worse, a permanent ban without exceptions!

Bullet; Blue You solve the problem, BRAVO! Clap
So you've blocked your troll, and you've hidden their comments. What now? Well, break out the Crystal, OPEN CHAMPAGNE BOTTLE, let the balloons flow and start the party, because I hope, that's that. :chairdance: You simply move on with your Internet life. Do keep in mind that your peace relies on you following through and not engaging in any that would encourage further harassment. That means you don't write journals about your troll, do not suggest deviations mocking them, and most importantly, do not get into public conversations high-fiving your friends over how dumb that troll was. He wasn't dumb, he was smart, you were dumb for taking his bait too seriously. Now sometimes, despite your best efforts, there are just some people who can't let it go and they will continue to shift the buttons. You've done your good deed, you've blocked them, you haven't spoken to (or about) them, and you've swaggered on to. Sadly, although your goodwill, le troll has now begun employing whatever methods they can to get around your block. You're a lucky boy because this behavior has a helpful knack of being against the rules!

Get up from the computer, take a moment if you need it so that when you come back you can STOP, BLOCK and ROCK!

Information

:iconrule1plz::iconrule2plz::iconrule3plz::iconrule4plz:

1. We are not the deviantART admins.

2. The primary purpose of this group is to encourage silent anonymous reporting nevertheless, we also aid in reporting when necessary.

3. We do not tolerate harassing ANY deviant for ANY reason, sometimes they genuinely don't know what they have done wrong, we do oversee telling them politely of the mistakes they have made, and reporting them CORRECTLY!

4. Please, DO NOT try getting this group involved in personal fights with users. If we see your judgment dedicated to that, we will flag it as spam!

5. Please, respect the reporting system and do not abuse it. Do not go addressing everything that offends you and saying it is worth reporting it.

6. You can review the terms of service and the etiquette policy to see what is permissible and not permissible on this site.

7. We cannot report copied art, we just can't. If you think, you must then tell the original artist, not us.

8. We no longer support or approve screenshots. deviantART forbids them, therefore, it's not our fault.
Unless it's a tutorial or something stupid, then we will allow it.

9. If you want to join, then you must not have anything that violates dA's terms of service in your gallery. We also recommend that your conduct remains appropriate while you are a member of this group.

10. The "Report Deviation" button is your greatest weapon against TOS Violators, use it wisely.

11. Due to the removal of third-party copyright infringement feature, we will no longer be accepting address to copyright infringement altogether. Sorry, blame ProtectArt for this, not us. I like how you make a whole journal about art theft but never do anything to stop it. Users have to report thieves manually rather than the website doing it themselves.

12. Do not send reports anything about youthful members or ban evaders if you cannot file the report yourself then communicate the group by note and a group admin will help you. Furthermore, we will hide any report that requires contacting the help desk.

13. We will hide reports related to harassment, as third-party harassment reports are no longer valid by the deviantART Administrators.Blame Daniel for this, not us.
Moreover, you can still send us harassment reports, and we will do all our best to push Administrators to take care of a problem. However, we won't guarantee you anything.

14. Don't ask to be a Founder, Co-Founder or a Contributor, we will hide and ignore your question.

15. From now on, when you want to report a user to the group, don't send us any reports that contain codes such as:
"Dev"
"Icon"
"@"

"Thumbs xxx" etc, otherwise, this "directly" identifies them and they begin filing against us for harassment. We are highly suggesting you don't bring us any drama here, if you have a problem, note the group and one of the administrators will assist you.

16. Copyright Policy: Learn it and live by it.
**You'd better understand this before sending anything to the group, even a comment.

17. You can watch these groups by catching official deviantART feature upgrades, news, and stuff:

For any misunderstandings.

The official Copyright website can keep you up-to-date with anything you need to know.

:lock:* A petition asking for art theft policy reform
If this reaches two thousand signatures, we may well see a change to the way this site deals with various cases of possible copyright infringement.
*The petition has been locked. It is no longer working.

This is a Tumblr page devoted to stopping theft! We were asked by another deviant in the community to have it here.

Artist Confessions can be used to disclose big popular art thieves anonymously so their fans will not swarm your page with hateful messages, it also serves as a place for artists to reflect on themselves and one another.
